“Legend Of Galactic Heroes – Die Neue These” Anime Preview And Plans Published

Yoshiki Tanaka’s Legend of the Galactic Heroes, telling a sci-fi war based on 19th century Prussian conflicts, inspired a huge body of anime between 1988 and 2000, including 110 OVA episodes and 52 side-story OVA episodes. In February 2014, after a decade and a half, a new anime project was announced during the opening of stage production Legend of the Galactic Heroes Chapter IV: After the Clash. Today, Tanaka and the Production I.G team (mostly from their Kuroko’s Basketball anime) took to the stage at Shinjuku Cultural Center to present plans for this new project.

The Legend of the Galactic Heroes Die Neue These anime will arrive with Dawn Chapter 12 episode TV anime in April 2018. Three theatrical screenings of four of episodic films from the Star chapter will then play in 2019.

This summer, Viz’s Haikasoru label announced plans to publish Yoshiki Tanaka’s novels and Sentai Filmworks announced the license of the earlier cult anime.
